RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- A very unusual crash scene is being investigated in Raleigh on Monday afternoon.

Chopper 11 flew over the scene near the intersection of Garner Road and McMakin Street.

A damaged white pickup truck could be seen crashed on top of a black car and leaning up on the side of a residential building. A third damaged car was sitting a few feet away.

Raleigh Police Department said the truck was going too fast down McMakin Street. It blew through the stop sign at the intersection of Garner Road, jumped a curb, hit a car in the driveway, flipped upside-down and landed on top of another car parked in the driveway.

Gerald Lamont Perry lives in the building where the crash happened. He has to find another place to stay for now.

"That's an unsafe building right there. So I'm worried about me and my family and where they're going to be tonight. So it's up to the landlord, and if he doesn't do anything about it, I will be contacting Raleigh Housing Authority today," Perry said.

Dozens of first responders responded to the crash. They had to get the driver of the truck out and take him to the hospital. The extent of his injuries have not been released.
